Zoo Lights

We took our own miniature version of Santa Claus :) to Zoo Lights. Hot apple cider, wild animals, a carousel ride and a huge illuminated snowman made for one craaaazy night!

On the 2nd Day of Christmas...

No French hens, maids a milking or golden rings (sigh)... but we do have the turtledoves.

...It's Christmas Time In The City!

We looked for signs of the season all around town- at the zoo, at Macy's, at the lights parade. Blaise even sat on Santa's lap- which was such a traumatic experience I didn't even snap a picture.

Just the Two of Us!

The cousins enjoy a Duplo playdate.

Some mornings, during playtime, little fingers pull Mary down from the dresser and she joins in the fun.

We met a special baby a few weekends ago, Blaise's "godbrother," Cullan Thesing! (Tommy is Cullan's godfather.) With a middle name like Bonucci, we know Tommy will make a perfect godfather. Love you, Cullan!

Favorite Place:

The playground across the street. Provides him with a daily dose of mischief.

Fall at the Zoo

We took a jaunt over to the zoo for "Harvest Days-" Chicago's best attempt at a pumpkin patch. :)

Saint Ping

Ping circa 2006. Youthful, sweet, cuddly.
Ping today. *Grouchy*
Ping of the future = Forgiving, gentle, warm hearted ???

Today Blaise and I took Ping to church for the annual Blessing of the Animals. (St. Francis' Feast Day is October 4.) We said a prayer that "Saint Ping" will be an angel of a cat from now on. Amen!

Boys' Night

On the nights that Mom teaches, all sorts of mischief happens. Here's a picture of the boys before they head home on the L and start the wild rumpus.
